It will be interesting to compare the favorite with the actual winner. I'll be surprised if it's the same one, but you never know.

A parade through Forumtown ... and a damn fine lynching, probably.What if someone wins 1st place and People's Choice Award?
Yes, it would have been, but the organisers didn't pursue that option. So we'll get a skewed vote this time around. It's come from that concept of one person/one vote, although it's not actually how people vote in Oz. We vote either individual or pre-set preferences, and that's with a sample size of millions. Maybe next time they'll come on board and we can get a truer reflection of the people's choice.Just give it time - there are lots more people coming to vote. Right?
Seems like this would have been a perfect place for the three-vote system like the poets do.
Only here. In the real world, it's quite OK, and electoral candidates do it all the time. Here, it's seen as selfish.
